Sound in Science

This term year 4 have been learning about sound.  We have learnt about the different parts of the ear and how sound travels through solids, liquids and gases.  We have investigated whether sound travels better through solids than gases, as well as designing and making our own instruments, thinking about how to change the pitch and volume of our instruments.

 

Microscopes

4CF spent time describing different objects and then drawing what they saw when they looked through the microscope.  The looked at a variety of objects including foam, sugar, poppy seeds and a 2p coin.  It was really interesting and good to see things close up!

 

Pants Week

We talked about the NSPCC rules of Pant week.  Some of us brought in our pants to attach the rules to so that we don't forget to keep our privates private!

One Plastic Bag by Miranda Paul

This term year 4 have been reading the real life story of Isatou Ceesay from the Gambia.  She was recycling hero in her community; up-cycling plastic bags into desirable purses.  Inspired by this, the children have been finding out about plastic and its impact on the environment.  As we are now trying to be courageous advocates , we have written letters to the supermarkets to ask for less plastic packaging; to the local MP and mayor to question why there is not more recycling in Kingston schools.  Watch this space for a response....
